2 Peter 1:3–10, 2:1–3, 3:14–18; Jude 17–25; 2 John 7–11; 2 Timothy 4:1–5

Family Discussion Questions

  • Who needs to be on the lookout for false teachers?
  • What does a false teacher teach?
  • When do we need to be on guard?
  • Where can we go to see how accurately a teacher is teaching?
  • Why must we be diligent about checking what teachers teach against the Bible?
  • How can we guard our hearts and minds?

Family Activities

  • Bible verse or Almost Verse – Have one person in the family read a verse or an almost verse from the Bible. For almost verses the reader changes one substantial word or phrase. Other members of the family decide if it is a real verse or an almost verse.
  • Look up the passage the pastor taught this week. Talk about how to verify what he was saying against the Bible itself.


Thanks to Disney many of you probably know that Ohana is Hawaiian for family but did you know that in its fullest sense, Ohana is a group of people bound by love and compassion for one another – it includes intentional, adopted family and close friends. This year at our Ohana Island VBS, we are going to be exploring how God created us for community with Him and with one another.

Ohana Island will run July 18-22 from 6:15-8:45PM. Evenings on Ohana Island will begin with our worship rally where we will dig into biblical truth and worship the God who designed us all. The night will continue with games, science, snacks, small group time, and missions. Each night will conclude with a short time of worship as we gather together for dismissal.

Registration is open so go ahead and start to share on social media, invite friends, and register your own children [www.cloughpike.com/ohana]!

Mark your calendars and come join us as we discover how we are created for community!

Join us for fun and fellowship as we get in the island spirit to kick off VBS week. The church will provide the meat. Will you help us fill in the sides and dessert? Sign up to help us know what is coming by visiting our sign up page here.

It’s that time of year again – This I Believe is back! We will be digging deep and taking a look at the most common questions about our faith. Join us each Wednesday in the Children’s Worship space for some serious learning and some serious fun.
